The Lucky Few: The Story of USS Kirk, Providing Humanitarian & Medical Care at Sea


Published July 2010


Scripted and produced by Jan Herman. "In late April and early May of 1975, the destroyer escort USS Kirk became a haven for refugees fleeing South Vietnam. Kirk's officers and enlisted personnel -- trained as warriors -- instantly transformed their man-of-war into a humanitarian assistance ship. Desperation and anguish gave way to reassurance as crew members fed their unexpected guests, dispensed medical care, diapered infants and provided hope to a dispirited people."
